Texas-Style Hog Eradication [VIDEO]


We cull the internet in search of the latest outdoors-related tidbits, YouTube clips, photos, memes, you name it. Stuff you HAVEN’T seen before, hopefully. If it’s amusing, entertaining, educational or astonishing, you’ll find it here. Check back every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and see what’s new.

If you need a little pick-me-up on this Monday morning, look no further than this footage of Texas-style hog eradication.

It’s a simple set-up: one driver, one shooter, a Polaris Ranger, a suppressed mag-fed shotgun, 3″ double-aught buckshot, and a whole mess of hogs.

It’s a recipe for what looks to be the most fun you can legally have in Texas—and that’s saying something.

The action comes fast and furious, so buckle in and enjoy:



Color me jealous as hell. This looks like an absolute blast.

And the best part? Hogs are an invasive species that destroys crops, outcompetes native species for food, and turn fields of grass and vegetation into mud. So eradicating them is good for the ecosystem.

If you’re concerned about the hogs suffering, just know that another vehicle follows close behind to make sure the hogs die quickly.

    Pigs are just starting to be a real problem here in Ontario Canada but it just became legal to shoot them under a small game licence. They will dodge around the issue until it gets out of control and some child gets hurt before they will get serious. By then it will be too late, just like the cormorant infestation.
